Include any widget in a page for any theme. [do_widget widgetname ] or [do_widget "widget name" ] [do_widget id=widgetnamedashed-n ]or inc
Insert a widget or multiple widgets or a entire widget area (sidebar) into a page using a shortcode.
Set up your widget first in a normal sidebar. Check it works. THEN Drag your chosen widgets to the sidebar called "widgets for shortcode".
Using a widget more than once? Reference a specific widget instance from the do_widget shortcode, or the chosen sidebar from the do_widget_area shortcode. Eg: [do_widget id=widget-n]
For example: You could use the query posts widget in the page to create a archive within a page, or the rss widget to list feed content from other sites. For more details see anmari.com
The plugins default action is that it will magically find the settings for your themes first sidebar and use the sidebars html to control the widgets output. In most cases this means the widget will be styled as per the rest of your theme. If that does not look good, parameters exist to override this behaviour. EG: in twenty-fourteen theme widget text ends up being white on white! widget_classes=none fixes that. Eg: [do_widget widget_classes=none yourwidget]
Change your theme and woried about losing the sidebar settings ? No problem, the plugin will save and restore the widgets_for_shortcode settings. On display it will then pick up the new themes sidebar settings. Check this still looks nice please! in some themes you may ned up with white text on a white background and will then have to override or change css.
PLEASE get your widgets working in a sidebar BEFORE activating this plugin, and PLEASE read https://wordpress.org/plugins/amr-shortcode-any-widget/installation/ before asking any questions.
